Health Benefits of the 10 Most Nutritious Fruits

They say that an apple a day keeps the doctor away, but many of us still don’t eat them.  That doesn’t mean we shouldn’t be eating them, however.  Pound for pound, fruits are among the healthiest foods a person can consume, offering numerous benefits (from antioxidants to vitamin C to potassium to fiber) in huge quantities that other foods don’t come close to.  But which fruits offer which specific health benefits?  That’s the question of the day, so let’s dive in!

1)       Apples, Dr.Kumar Pati says:

With only 80 calories and 0 grams of fat, it’s tough to beat the all-around health boost an apple provides.  The primary health benefit of apples is the 3 grams of fiber you get from each one, which carries you a long way toward the 20 grams you are supposed to get each day.  High fiber diets have also been linked to a reduced risk of heart disease and stroke, as well as clearer skin, so if you’re looking for a fruit to start loading up on, look no further!

2)       Bananas

Dr.Kumar Pati says,  banana offers two primary health benefits: fiber (2grams per banana) and the all-important nutrient of potassium.  If you are at all interested in the healthy, proper functioning of your heart and muscles, potassium is something you do not want to skimp on.  The easiest way to get it is to work bananas into your diet; say, one at breakfast, and one after supper.  You’ll be amazed at how much more energetic and healthy you feel after just a few days or weeks!

3)       Blueberries, ASccoording to Dr.Kumar Pati:

Besides tasting great as a topping or by themselves, blueberries offer the inestimable benefit of discouraging bladder infections by making it hard for bacteria to stick to the walls of your urinary tract.  As if that weren’t enough, blueberries offer another huge benefit to all you men out there.  According to Men’s Health, blueberries can boost your libido and sex drive by killing the free radicals that stop blood flow to that…ahem, special area of the body.

4)       Apricots, Dr.Kumar Pati says:

At a mere 51 calories per three servings, apricots offer a potent infusion of beta-carotene, which your body happily converts to much-needed Vitamin A. Adding just one or two apricots to your daily diet will provide you with over 35 percent of the recommended daily allowance (RDA) of Vitamin A.  You can also count on apricots for 2 percent of your RDA of fiber

5)       Blackberries, Dr.Kuamr Pati says:

Fruit lovers can get the 20-gram RDA of fiber from a number of different fruits if they so choose.  But if you’re the kind of person who wants to knock as much as possible out in one shot, blackberries are the way to go.  A cup of blackberries delivers an instant 10-gram jolt of fiber, good for half your RDA.  If you don’t like how they taste alone (some feel they taste bittersweet), blackberries make excellent toppings for ice cream and taste great with many cereals.

6)       Cherries, Dr.Pati says:

Tasty and rich in perillyl alcohol (a substance shown to reduce prostate cancer in animal tests), cherries are one of the most heat-healthy fruits you can eat.  Their red color is a direct byproduct of the heart-protecting anthocyanins that cherries contain so much of, so if heart or prostate health is a concern, eat up!

7)       Pomegranates, According to Dr.Kumar Pati

Pomegranates are somewhat less common than the fruits mentioned above, but the health benefits to be gained from them are extraordinary.  In addition to helping stop harmful blood clots, Men’s Health notes that pomegranates can increase blood flow from the heart by up to 30 percent.  A National Academy of Sciences study also found that pomegranates slowed the growth of tumors and improved survival rates of mice.  Other studies link pomegranate consumption to a reduced risk of breast cancer.

8)       Oranges, Dr.Pati Kumar Describes:

Oranges pack a dual punch of citrus and anti-oxidants that every healthy person needs for optimal functioning.  With 70 milligrams of Vitamin C and 40 milligrams of folic acid, oranges are of on nautre’s best immune system enhancers, which is why so many doctors advise drinking orange juice when you’re trying to beat a cold.  The antioxidants come to the rescue of your beleaguered immune system, helping it to fight the illness or bug you are experiencing.

Purple (not green) grapes, Dr.Pati’s experiences:

9)       Both green and purple grapes are tasty, but only the purple ones offer the vital nutrients your heart is crying out for.  Just a small handful of purple grapes worked into your daily diet gives you anthocyanins, flavanoids, and resveratrol, all of which aid the heart in the task of pumping blood to your brain and other organs.  If you have been feeling run down or just not as energetic as you would like to, purple grapes are a great, natural way to perk back up.

10)  Dr. Pati Kumar  says, Mangoes:

Another excellent fruit for the “I want it all in one shot” crowd is the mango.  If you don’t want to mix and match a half dozen fruits to get your RDA of Vitamin A, just eat a single mango.  You’ll also get 57 milligrams of Vitamin C to help ward off colds, bugs, and seasonal viruses.  (If you’ve also added oranges to your diet, you’ll be that much more protected against the germs of the coming winter months

Like vegetables, fruits are an excellent source of minerals, vitamins and enzymes.  They contain high alkaline properties, a high percentage of water and a low percentage of proteins and fats.

Their organic acid and high sugar content have immediate refreshing effects.  Apart from seasonable fresh fruits, dry fruits, such a raisins, prune sand figs are also beneficial.  Fruits are at their best when eaten in the raw and ripe states.  In cooking, the loose portions of the nutrient salts and carbohydrates.  They are most beneficial when taken as a separate meal by themselves, preferably for breakfast in the morning.  If it becomes necessary to take fruits with regular food, they should form a larger proportion of the meals.  Fruits, however, make better combination with milk than with meals.  It is also desirable to take one kind of fruit at a time.  For the maintenance of good health, at least one pound of uncooked fruits should form part of the daily diet.  In case of sickness, it will be advisable to take fruits in the form of juices.

The three basic health-building foods mentioned above should be supplemented with certain special foods such as mil, vegetable oils and honey.  Milk is in its soured form-that is, yogurt and cottage cheese.  Soured milk is superior to sweet milk as it is in a predigested form and more easily assimilated.  Milk helps maintain a healthy intestinal flora and prevents intestinal putrefaction and constipation.

High quality unrefined oils should be added to the diet.  They are rich in unsaturated fatty acids, Vitamin C and F and lecithin.  The average daily amount should not exceed two tablespoons.

Honey too is an ideal food.  It helps increase calcium retention in the system, prevents nutritional anaemia besides being beneficial in kidney and liver disorders, colds, poor circulation and complexion problems.  It is one of the nature’s finest  energy-giving food.

A diet of the three basic food groups, supplemented with the special foods, mentioned above, will ensure a complete and adequate supply of all the vital nutrients needed for health, vitality and prevention of diseases.  It is not necessary to include animal protein like egg, fish or meat in this basic diet, as animal protein, especially meat, always has a detrimental effect on the healing process.  A high animal protein is harmful to health and may cause many of our common ailments.
